Nissan has unveiled a new ‘extreme’ prototype to take on even the harshest winter conditions.

The Rogue Warrior sits atop heavy-duty triangular snow tracks, each nearly three feet high, in a design that boasts the ability to climb Canadian ski slopes at up to a 45 degree incline.

The Warrior was modified by Quebec-based Motorsports in Action, and was designed specifically to tackle snowy conditions.

Nissan debuted the snow-crushing crossover at the 2016 Montreal International AutoShow.

In a transformation of the Nissan Rogue, the company’s highest selling model in Canada, the Warrior can handle a variety of environments.

But, with heavy duty snow tracks each measuring 30 inches in height, 48 inches in length, and 15 inches wide, the Warrior is best equipped for the snow.

The truck can breach 60 miles per hour and scale a snowy incline with a ground clearance of 23 inches.

Along with its reveal at the Montreal International Auto Show, where it will be on display until January 24, Nissan has launched a video to show the truck’s full capabilities.

The Rogue Warrior can only be driven by an expert, and 2015 Micra Cup champion Olivier Bédard takes on the job as official driver.
